Firefighters are famous for rescuing cats stranded in trees. That’s mostly a myth, as it turns out–but our four-legged friends still have a lot to thank firefighters for. 

On Sunday night, a rowhouse on the 3600 block of E. Lombard Street caught on fire. The home was empty and the fire was put out within 45 minutes; two firefighters were sent to the hospital with minor injuries, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Also injured was a friendly-looking tabby cat, who firefighters revived with an oxygen mask and some IV fluids. This is par for the course for firefighters, apparently. Of course, saving people and property is a priority, and our fire department does plenty of that–but there’s just something so heart-wrenching about seeing a big guy coming to the rescue of something small, fuzzy, and scared. (If you’re having a bad morning, I suggest you spend some time with this photoset of firefighters saving cats.)

We’re waiting on word from the FD about the status of both cat and firefighters

  1. Firefighters are just true heroes in every sense of the word. They’re always the first ones at a disaster and they have such great hearts. This is such a sweet story. My kitty cat and I thank you.
